Bavaria

Has anybody fish this lake during the winter? I have taken some nice crappies in the spring near the landing. Caught some nice size Northerns also and caught a 6' ugly stick with real.

Bavaria isn't real well known for being an ice fishing lake. I have also taken decent crappies and sunfish from the lake. It's just not a very good ice fishing lake for me at least.

We fishd Bavaria this summer and NOTHING but tiny sunfish. Sounds like we should give the bay near the landing a try in the spring though...

Havent seen anybody really out there but when i drove by there today i saw there was a permanent right on the west end of the lake. I am not sure how longs he's been out there but i dont think its been out there more than a week. The owner was just driving off as i pulled into the access but i didnt have a chance to chat with him. I was on my way home from another lake but i just couldnt resist the chance to hop down there and fish it so i grabbed the locator the hand auger and a rod and walked out in front of the access. Drilled in 19 fow and dropped the jig down. It only took a few seconds to spot a few fish come off the bottom and take a wiff. After missing a couple i pulled it up and it was just a dinky sunfish. So i just moved out deeper and didnt have any luck in 30 fow. Then went into 9 fow on the weed edge and gave it a few minutes with no luck so i just packed up becuase i had to get home. I was only there about 20 min and maybe if i would have stuck around i would have caught something decent.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
